Fruitful by Lois Thompson £1350 plus postage and packing
“This oil painting grew out of a sketch made during a time of experimentation. The trunk is drawn onto the canvas and the sky lightens from a deep purple horizon, soft blues to soft creamy heavenlies. The main ground area is deep blood red with flooded with many glazes to bring depth. Where flowers would rarely grow they have sprung up at the base of the tree trunk in a profusion of colour and life. These are worked in thick impasto paint based on actual English countryside wild flowers but loosely worked for colour and texture. ” Lois Thompson
““But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes;its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17 : 8
